A practical, hands-on tool for families who want to eat a healthy diet, this book explains nutrition from carrots to cookies. In this book, you will learn: all about the nutrient groups—carbohydrates, protein, fat, water, vitamins, and minerals; each nutrient’s function; which foods contain which nutrients; how much of each nutrient a kid needs each day; how the body digests food and all about calories. Good Enough to Eat includes kid-friendly recipes such as Alpha bread and Full o’ Beans Soup, and even shows kids how to test their food for fat. Perfect for parents, educators, librarians, and doctors trying to explain healthy eating to kids! Ages 5 and up.
